FSC theatre department presents "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying"
LAKELAND, Fla. (Feb. 3, 2005) - Florida Southern's theatre department presents the musical "How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying" in the Loca Lee Buckner Theatre on the Florida Southern campus. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 17-19 and Feb. 24-26; matinees start at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 20 and Feb. 27. Paul D. Bawek, assistant theatre arts professor, directs the play.
This 1961 Broadway hit from the authors of "Guys and Dolls" won eight Tony Awards, including best musical, director, composer, author, and producer. A successful 1995 Broadway revival brought a Tony Award to the play's star, Matthew Broderick. The irreverent satire of big business, with music by Frank Loesser, follows the hilarious schemes of a window washer as he climbs to executive status using flattery and deception.
Tickets are $15. FSC students are admitted free. Non-FSC students pay half price. For ticket information, please contact the Branscomb Auditorium box office at (863) 680-4296.
